Why Do You Write Poetry? Has Moved

Long-time readers might be familiar with my semi-regular blog posts wherein I put the above question to practitioners of the poetic art to find out what motivates them to practise it in the first place.

As of now that semi-regular feature will become a regular feature, appearing once a month over at Going Down Swinging‘s Blue Corner blog. The first post went up today, featuring ex-GDS ed Kevin Brophy’s answer-in-the-form-of-a-poem which some of you may remember as originally appearing right here back in November.

It’s nice to be taken under the GDS wing once more. I’m really looking forward to hanging out with the other blue cornerers and seeing what they come up with in the weeks ahead.

If you’re a poet type and you want to have a swing at an answer to the above, by all means contact me by leaving a comment here or by using the somewhat confusing email address listed somewhere on this blog. Or if you just want to know what drives other poets, stay tuned to the Blue Corner for more.

You still here?
